Infiniti Q50 Drives Home With Award for Certified Pre-Owned Value
While we write about the latest and greatest cars here at The News Wheel, buying a brand new car that suits all of your need might not be in your budget. Certified Pre-Owned cars give you the benefit of the lower price of a used car and the security of a warranty and detailed inspection. If you’re looking for some lightly-driven luxury, the Infiniti Q50 just brought home the 2019 Vincentric Best Certified Pre-Owned Value in America Award in luxury mid-size sedan segment.
Vincentric really does it homework when looking for the best CPO cars in the business. First, it does a statistical analysis to see which vehicles in the running had lower ownership costs than projected for its segment and price class. It reportedly shifted through the data of more than 15,000 vehicle configurations, categorizing vehicle costs into eight categories: depreciation, fees, taxes, fuel, financing, opportunity cost, maintenance, and repairs. The manufacturer’s warranty for the CPO vehicle was also factored in Vincentric’s data, as well as the mileage limits to become CPO. Each car was then examined in all 50 states plus Washington D.C. to make sure that location wasn’t a factor in the figures.
We’re exhausted just looking at those steps.
“At Infiniti, we make it a priority to ensure that each vehicle will stand the test of time, offering lasting value and quality, and we are honored to be recognized by Vincentric,” said Marty Gleason, director of pre-owner strategy and sales, Infiniti USA. “Through our Certified Pre-Owned program, we are able to give owners peace of mind knowing that their Infiniti will continue to perform like new through every mile driven in its lifetime.”

Infiniti’s CPO program features a detailed 167-point car inspection. While vehicle inspections are standard for CPO vehicles, Infiniti’s impressive warranty lasts for six years and unlimited miles. If you’re considering a newish car for your fleet, it’s worth giving these vetted cars a look.
